Ever created a character in a game but can’t their actual face given it’s all covered up by your headpiece? Capcom is fixing that by adding a “hide headgear” option in Monster Hunter World!

Those not familiar with RPGs, this means that players will be able to choose whether they want their created character to sport a headgear or not, without any stat or skill loss. If your headgear is rocking some serious buffs to your character, then you’d still get that even if you choose to not have the headgear shown in-game.
Chances are, Monster Hunter World players will opt to bypass having their headpieces shown in the game given how robust the character creation tool is.
Monster Hunter World is set for a January 26, 2018 release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with PC players getting it at a later date.
